RING

Unique ID: SWYOR-12BB85

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A copper alloy ring of uncertain date and function. It is a rod of sub-square but rounded section which has been bent into a closed loop. The ends butt up to each other. The inner edge is worn and rounded. The ring was found in a field that has produced many Roman finds, so a Roman date is tentatively suggested. The patina is well developed and is a very dark brown colour with some pitting. Compare BERK-D773A4 and BERK-1DF112.
